I've been poking around in here for some months, standing by the side of the pool.
So I'm finally jumping in the pool and 35 and older seemed like a good place to start.
Seeing a doc about low test and have just started on androgel (about two weeks now). Mood has improved and lifting feels good again.
Anyway, welcome to me.
For answers to board issues, read the Suggestion and News forum at the bottom of the main page.
welcome. Did you get your IGF-1 levels checked as well as estradiol?
No, but I have an appointment with my doc on April 4. I'm going to redo blood work using the laundry list of things to check that I'm gathering from this forum.Originally Posted by SJA

Ok, good tip, thanks for the help. I'll make sure he knows I'm going to drive him crazy with questions and tests.Originally Posted by SJA
He's been pretty good about things so far, seems to have no problem with HRT.
I've done heart scans and sonograms for the GI, everything is in good working order except for the damn test levels.
